INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. -- More than 75 volunteers are helping search for a missing Indian River County woman.

Under the direction of the Indian River Sheriff’s Office, the volunteers began searching in the Oslo Riverfront Preserve Wednesday.

The area is heavily wooded so every 30 minutes each volunteer must check in with the sheriff’s office.

The Red Cross is also at the scene of the search. The organization is feeding family members and the volunteers.

Assunta Susy Tomassi, who has dementia, has been missing since Friday afternoon.

She was last seen on surveillance video from the Wildwood Antique Mall of Vero Beach.

If you see her, please contact the Indian River County Sheriff's Office.
